No, I don't mean a break from the game. What I'm suggesting is a vacation that includes golf. Golf packages have become increasingly popular over the past few decades because people have realized that they can play the game that they love anywhere in the world. Going away doesn’t mean that you have to leave your clubs at home.
This article will answer two key questions: What kind of golfing holiday is right for you and then, where you should go.
There are getaways for all needs and wants:
A holiday in the UK can be fun. If, for example, it has always been your dream to play at St Andrews or you want to emulate your favorite Ryder Cup stars by playing at the Belfry, then Great Britain has many options for hackers.
Then, of course there are overseas options. The USA has many dedicated regions that cater to players. You can play on the famous desert courses in Arizona and California. Florida is a very popular region in the winter and you the New England area offers many of the famous US Open venues. Crossing the ocean again, The United Arab Emirates and other countries in the Middle East are embracing the game. But there is one country that satisfies all of our needs as an ideal getaway destination. The weather is perfect all year round; there are many championship courses in the region; you can get there on a two-hour flight and it provides all the options for the different needs that I mentioned earlier - Portugal.
Golfing breaks in Portugal are cheap, easy to plan and cater to all types of players. You can find cheap golf breaks in Portugal and if you want to spend a little more then you can search online for "golf breaks Vilamoura" to book at some of the most exclusive luxury resorts and spas in the region.
Europe has plenty of ideal destinations for holidays: The Swiss Alps, the Mediterranean Coast of Spain (not to mention the Andalucía region) to the courses of Italy. All of these are great options and Portugal is the best of the bunch. So get searching this weekend for last minute golf breaks in the Algarve. Those lush green fairways, white sand bunkers and all-inclusive spa breaks are waiting for you.
